This picture was taken back in 2009 - no pinching here!
So yes, I'm a hopeless sap for St. Patrick's Day, but not in a green-beer-drinking, Irish-stew-eating, soda-bread-making sort-of way. I grew up with a mom who would dye the food green on St. Patrick's Day and made sure that we were wearing green so we didn't get pinched.
I'm carrying on the green-food tradition, thanks to the bread machine and some green food coloring
I love the way we have created our own traditions to celebrate the holiday, including a yearly showing of Darby O'Gill and the Little People - how can you beat listening to Sean Connery sing?!
And I love quoting lines from The Quiet Man:
"He'll regret it to his dying day, if ever he lives that long."
"Sir, sir...here's a nice stick to beat the lovely lady!"
So from this Scotch-Irish/English/Cherokee lass to you...
Top o'the Mornin' and
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Top o'the Mornin' to you too!!ReplyDelete
Can't wait for corned beef and cabbage tonight. Though a bit of your green bread would be a nice addition...
I'm a mutt in real life too, but consider myself 100% Irish on this greenest of days. :)
I LOVE the quiet man. My dad gave my husband a stick once and quoted that line...hubby had never seen it before and was HORRIFIED. It was hilarious. I think we should check our family trees, lots of similarities. I'm pretty well mutted up too! Have a wonderful St. Patricks day, one Scotts-Irish to another!ReplyDelete
Hahahahaha, man, I needed a laugh today and that picture of you all clovered out did it, lol! LOVE IT!ReplyDelete
Happy St. Patty's Day!!
I am ashamed and appalled to disappoint you, but nevertheless will reveal, that I had a/ never heard of a film with Sean Connery singing and b/ the gall to look the film up in Wikipedia just now to check if it really was him singing. And it wasn't.ReplyDelete
Check it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darby_O'Gill_and_the_Little_People, the article in which we learn that indeed both voices in your clip were dubbed by other singers.
Nevertheless, I am a sometimes reader of your blog, which often brings me much enjoyment!
